Wow. Matilda what a show. As for the theatre, in an amazing location, the heart of London! Inside it's small but quaint and lovely.

The theatre is fairly easy to find and has great staff. The bar areas and toilets are small and fill up quickly so I don't recommend hanging around. The theatre itself is large and seats on the upper circle do feel very far away from the stage. Side views are also fairly restrictive but not enough to be a worry.... More

Went to see the evening show of Matilda! What can I say - first class performances, true professional singing and acting from the children. When I bought the tickets they were the last 3 available 1,2 and 3 C in the upper circle but the view was fantastic. Booster cushions available for the kids too. Little quirky chalkboards all over...

We went to see Matilda and it was brilliant! What a talented bunch of people! The musical was so enjoyable ad I would recommend everyone go to see it. We managed to get two tickets for a bargain at the Leicester Square booths. The drinks were lovely and we pre-ordered for the interval - the bar staff was extremely polite,... More

Saw Matilda on Saturday the 11th January (Matinee) and loved it! I was entertained from the beginning to the end and amazed by the talent of the children in this production! The theatre is lovely - a bit tricky to see if you have a tall person in front of you but not a problem at all!
